Depleting your carbohydrate stores during exercise is one of the major causes of fatigue. Delivering additional carbohydrate during exercise is known to improve performance, race times and delay the onset of fatigue.
The Isotonic formula allows the gel to empty from the stomach quickly as no fluid needs to be drawn into your stomach to dilute the gel, providing fast energy. SiS GO Isotonic Energy Gels are highly practical and can easily be carried without the requirement for bulky bottles.
WHEN SHOULD I CONSUME THESE?
Consume 1-3 gels per hour during endurance exercise to maximise carbohydrate utilisation rates. Alternatively, take one halfway through repeated high intensity exercise (such as football or rugby) to rapidly replenish glycogen stores.
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE THESE VERSUS ELECTROLYTE, CAFFEINE OR L-CARNITINE GELS?
These should be consumed when you need a fast, convenient energy boost. During endurance exercise lasting over 90 minutes, these should be the main gels that are used throughout a race. Use in combination with other Energy products e.g 1 x GO Isotonic Energy Gel and 1 x 500ml GO Electrolyte to hit 58 grams of carbohydrate (per hour).
DO THESE CONTAIN ASPARTAME?
No, Gels do not contain aspartame.
WILL THEY FIT IN MY CYCLE JERSEY POCKET?
Yes! All GO Gels are lightweight, compact and designed to fit in jersey pockets, cycle bags and waist packs. They are pressure tested, so don't worry about the packaging tearing or bursting during exercise.
